Staff Picks: Super Tuesday!!

By: Dylan Schleicher @ 8:36 PM – Filed under: Management & Workplace Culture

To welcome voters to this year's biggest primary (a.k.a Super Tuesday), I came across a book that was just published by the University of Illinois Press entitled: Women for President: Media Bias in Eight Campaigns by Erika Falk. It talks about past and present media attention to women in politics.
Here's what some people are saying about it:
"A powerful evidence-based look at how the media has overlooked and undervalued women presidential candidates since they first ran over 130 years ago. This is a must read for political operatives and voters across America."
- Donna Brazile, chair of the Democratic National Committee's Voting Rights Institute and campaign manager for Gore-Liebersman 2000
"Well written and well arugeed, Women for President is a must read for anyone trying to make sense of Hillary Clinton's bid to become the Democratic nominee for president."
- Kathleen Hall Jamieson, author of Packaging the Presidency: A History of Criticism of Presidential Advertising.
Happy Voting Everyone!!
